Take a Ride on the Breckenridge Gondola
If you didn’t know the Breckenridge Ski Resort’s gondola is pet-friendly, and free, now you do.

But once at the top of the mountain, dogs are welcome over near the base of Peaks 7 and 8.

In fact, here's a map of all the trails in Breckenridge's, which you guessed it, are all dog friendly.
